wireless networking – Using a linksys wrt160n v3 router as a repeater – troubleshoot

Following explanation in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ud-Hq3kgvk4&t=1s

I tried to use a linksys wrt160n v3 router as a repeater for having internet signal in places it does not reach.

Main router from the cable/internet provider is a Sagemcom F@st 3890 v3 tlc.

I succeded in making the linksys to receive wifi signal (it appears connected in the Sagemcom net map) but I can not make it to emit wifi.

Can t understand why.

Main router s ip is

Linksys original ip is

Did not change ip at first because they were already different. As the link sys did not emit wifi, I tried to change ip (int he thought that maybe they had to be in same subnet) to

Now I can not enter the linksys management window, having no other solution than resetting the thing (again).

Any ideas? Thanks in advance to everyone!

Ps: I´d like the linksys to emit a wifi with a different name, so I know which one is in use. I thought that was what was detailed in the video, but nothing happened, although said broadcast is enabled for the second router, there is no wifi signal detected from it.

I found the youtube video in an old post from this web:
